Watch a LEGO Machine Build Paper Airplanes


Artist and engineer Arthur Sacek is known for building elaborate machines and sculptures exclusively from LEGO bricks. His past projects—which include LEGO clocks and other electronics—are breathtakingly complex and extremely creative. His latest project is no exception.

The LEGO engineer teamed up with Arrow Electronics to create a paper airplane-making machine out of LEGO Mindstorms intelligent bricks. The invention (shown in the video above) slowly and meticulously moves a sheet of paper through a robotic assembly line, folding it in stages, and finally launching it into the air.  Go behind the scenes with Sacek and his team as they design and build their airplane machine in the video below.
